Biography and Credentials

Most of you know me as a canine blogger and creator, some as an editor and writing mentor. However I had different passions earlier than writing about canine: music and sound.

I maintain bachelor’s and grasp’s levels in music (harpsichord efficiency) and a grasp’s diploma in engineering science (acoustics). My engineering grasp’s analysis was in lively noise management (right here’s my thesis) and I authored an article about it that was revealed by a peer-reviewed journal.

I’ve just lately been privileged to convey my experience in music, sound, and acoustics to the canine coaching and habits world. I assess the claims of sound-related merchandise and write instructional articles on the physics of sound associated to canine. I’ve offered two webinars on canine and sound: “Sound Selections” via the Science Canine Programs (webinar not at present obtainable) and “Beethoven for Your Canine—Actually?” for the Lemonade Convention 2021.

It’s additionally a life ardour for me to “translate” technical and scientific info for the general public, and boy, have I discovered a necessity for this within the canine world. Ever since I spotted what number of sound-oriented merchandise there are for canine, and the way a lot misinformation is knocking about, I’ve been capable of convey my passions collectively.

Having a Sound-Phobic Canine Adjustments The whole lot

However I even have a special type of “credential.” I can’t ever write about canine and sound with out mentioning Zani. I used to be the guardian of a beloved, clinically sound-phobic canine, and know firsthand the heartbreaks that situation may cause. I nonetheless discover and alert at noises in her “scary” vary, regardless that she has been gone for 3 years now.

I consulted with veterinary behaviorist Dr. E’Lise Christensen of Conduct Vets, who made a life-changing distinction for Zani together with her analysis and therapy. I can be without end grateful; Zani had been in disaster together with her phobia, anxiousness, and panic assaults. After Zani was secure, I carried out desensitization and counterconditioning for her phobia of beeps and whistles. This video exhibits her earlier than and after therapy.

Zani is without doubt one of the huge causes I’m devoted to preventing misinformation about treating sound phobias and why I put out evidence-based info on canine, music, and sound.
